With so much going on in our daily lives, you would think that conversations would be easy to spark. But that’s not always the case. Not even in marriage. How often have we taken long car rides without saying much to our wife and vice versa? Can you think of a time when the two of you just sat on the couch in complete silence? Probably so! You want to engage in conversation, but either you have nothing to say or you find yourselves talking about the same things over and over. Pretty boring, right?
So fellas, how in the world can we elevate the conversation with our wives?
Spark a conversation about God and your spiritual walk with Him.
Recently, my wife and I have been talking about God a lot more than we usually do. It’s actually very exciting, enlightening and refreshing all at the same time! When we get on the topic of God, the conversation becomes so engaging. It allows us to share our daily testimonies with each other, tell of God’s goodness, discuss how we can be more effective in His kingdom — and so much more!
Just yesterday, while I was at work, my wife called me super excited. She told me that she had just listened to a short sermon by Myles Munroe. She told me how God lead her to watch it and she eagerly wanted me to watch it as well. Later on after work, we engaged in an exciting conversation about God and what we learned in that sermon.
Holding conversations about God in marriage is very essential. It causes both husband and wife to engage with each other and grow closer to God together. I encourage you to read God’s Word, then talk about what you read with your wife. Listen to a sermon and share it with her. Has God revealed something to you through prayer? Share it with your wife! Conversation about God is essential and it should honestly be included in conversation on a regular basis.
Psalm 37:4 states:
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires (NLT).
Fellas, delight in the Lord with your wife. Talk about God as much as you can! God never gets boring!
Of course your daily dialogue has to include other components of life (issues, finances, plans, etc) but the goal is to remember God in your conversations. It’ll change your marriage forever. I guarantee it.
What topics concerning God can you talk about in your marriage?
